eBay Challenge: The Ultimate Getaway Car For Less Than $5,000

We've all had the fantasy - leading a 30-car police chase through the desert or making a daring escape through winding city streets, Gone in 60 Seconds style to save your idiot brother from being turned into the world's squishiest license plate. Here's the challenge: find the world's best getaway car for under $5000, on eBay.

Here are the rules:

  • Selections aren't limited to simply 'cars' (kit cars, trucks, and military/commercial vehicles included)
  • Cars must have a realistic selling price under $5,000.
  • Cars must be operable/easily restored to running condition.
  • Completed and sold listings can be included.
  • You can add modifications, as long as it doesn't go over the total budget.
  • Write a short reason why your car is the ultimate getaway machine.

Now go find a car that would make Eleanor blush. You have 24 hours.

I'll arrange the best selections after making sure I don't have a tail.
